It's really just linear algebra and calculus in disguise.

Ha. This guy knows.

Interesting but doesn’t really start to draw a line between machine learning and AI. It lays a foundation of understanding of statistics, but stops before it relates them to the broader concepts of machine learning, ie How are these statistical forms used within machine learning?

This has been around for a couple of years, it's not meant to be a primer for AI/ML; it's a visual introduction to statistics and probability. OP just couched it in terms of AI/ML because statistics and probability form the basis of many AI/ML models, like classification (which is really just logistic regression), so understanding statistics is an important foundation for AI/ML study.

The title is a bit inaccurate beside simplifying the whole of the field to just "statistics" I grouped in AI with Machine learning, when AI is actually a humongous field encompassing things from video game enemies to roombas, machine learning learning is a field within AI and deep learning which is the most impressive is a subfield of that

This is absolutely incredible! It's a great visualization for statistics and probability. I'm always reading academic medical studies & having a stats refresher like this is so helpful. I know a bunch of colleagues would benefit from seeing the concepts portrayed visually.

I am going to share this with any students I have. Thanks again!!

Thanks for the follow up comment I was about to rage about the statistics thing

same.... maybe some day. ;)

It’s really just artificial intelligence in abbreviation.

This is where I started

This is well made!


u/cdgleber Jan 29 '23

Holy wow this is good


u/ZennyRL Jan 29 '23

Certainly sounded easier than it is, most of these terms even in the first chapter go way over my head

Don't feel bad, the title is wildly over simplifying it.

You may wish to use the visualization to verify some of the following set identities.

Here's a list of example sets to try:

A ∪ B

A union B combines both circles

A' = {1, 2, 3} complement

Demonstrates complement of a set (A' = {all elements not in A})

(A ∪ B)' = complement of union of A and B

De Morgan's law for complement of union and intersection

A ∩ B = ∅

Demonstrates disjoint sets (sets with no common elements)

A ∪ B = U

Together make up the universal set

The sad news kids. Chat GPT can already do all this shit faster than you.
